No that's fine, they expect the system to be Imperial, so made no attempts to hide their presence. They're aiming to go at fort Macherius on Kalpihera Primus, if you want to add in them mentioning such in a briefing, you're welcomed.

I imagine it would take some time for scions to perfrom any meaningful training with the milita anyhow so you are covered Bob.

Yeah. My idea was to deploy about 3 companies worth of Scions (140 ish men) in various reconnaissance missions in the Ork instested lands. The bulk of the force would be spread around to train and reinforce security, and a mobile force (likely the Fist, it's kinda their thing) on standby with Valkyries to move around as reinforcements.

Sounds good bob! If we write any NPC pieces I can have someone comment on the presence of stormtroopers on the agri world just to keep you around.

With that most of the forces deployed we may begin!

For those who have yet to write about deploying please do so. After than folks may message a DM about a desired action in any adejancant sector their forces are currently located in. You will recieve a result and can write a little piece about it.

The Crusade had begun.

The nostalgia just hit me like a freight train. So, So many good memories.

Alright, I'm not as free as I once was but I'm in. Depending on what you want, I can do Necrons (No longer the democratic kind), Thousand Sons, Night Lords, Admech, or Primaris.

I can also give a quick rundown or synopsis of each if anyone would like to know more

Okay, here's my synopsis (Not a great one, still shaking of the cobwebs) for my Mechanicus and Thousand Sons

Mechanicus:
Spoiler:
NEFASTUS COHORT
Faction: Adeptus Mechanicus (DISCLAIMER: I suck with Admech rank/title stuff, it’s complicated)
Sub Faction: Legio Cybernetics, Undisclosed Forge World
Size: One Cohort (Not sure on solid number, assume around 20,000) including Bonded Cybernetica, Basilikon Astra, Skitarius Clades, Munitoria Logis, and Explorator Forces
Deployment Constraints: A rather shady group of Admech, deploy away from other Imperium forces to hide operations and other such things.
Allies: None
Nemesis: Inquistion
Goal: Assimilation of anything deemed an asset to technological advancement, xenos or otherwise. Exploration of ancient ruins and the hording of enemy technology after a battle is the Modus Operandi.
Faction Assets: Extensively Modified Ark Mechanicus Class Battleship Unknown, Numerous Battle Servitors and Robots, Tech scrambling/shrouding equipment.
HIERARCHY
Magos Prime E-X V7K/79N Preeminent Operator of the Forbidden Chorus: In command of all assets tied to the Nefastus Cohort and the Cohort itself. Its will is the will that guides the Cohort from one ‘exploration’ to another. Rarely heard from and even rarer to see, only the heads of the Cohort are allowed to meet with it, and only when necessary. Does not take to the field and does not leave the Ark Mechanicus.
Magos Dominus Shurat Hextalamo, Neosphere Warden Magificat: Handles the introcommunicative neosphere network personally adapted and modified by himself. Ensures that the vox shrouds and auspex scrambler array maintain full capacity. Fleet master of the Nefastus Cohort
Datamason Prime Tau-Delta19, Calibrator of Sacred Paths: Personally oversees maintenance and warfare regarding his children, the cybernetica assets.
Skitarii Martial Rosk Kubask: Leads his personal clade of the Graven Gate


Thousand Sons:
Spoiler:
WAR COVENS OF THE CORUSCATING GAZE
Faction: Heresy Era Thousand Sons
Sub Faction: Numerous ‘Cults’, Primarily Cult of Knowledge (allegedly)
Size: ~90 Sorcerers, ~900 dusty Astartes, ~9000 Tzaangor Serfs
Deployment Constraints: Low number of actual Thousand Sons makes them secretive and conservative with deployment.
Allies: Vectorium of the Thrice-Cursed Plague Korps, Kingdom of the Gore Storm (WIP), Warband of the Sonorous Rapture (WIP), Unknown Chaos Faction
Nemesis: Space Wolves
Goal: Feeling spurned by the Emperor’s actions, this chapter of thousand sons has spent the last 10,000 years searching for as to why things turned out the way they did. Truth-seekers and arcane inquirers, the Coruscating Gaze seeks to burn away not just those who stand in the way of their goal, but to burn all lies as well.
Faction Assets: 1 Large Silver Tower, Escorts, More TBD
HIERARCHY
-The Nine Gazes, Leading Council
--Arch Magister Apophitar Rah, The Coruscating Gaze: Secretive and commands from the throne of his Silver Tower, that is until a relic or library catches his eyes. Pyrae Cult
---High Magister Daathar Shen, Second Gaze: Dull when around the other Coven leaders, far more ambitious around the lesser sorcerers, and leads the few remaining Sekhmet Terminators to battle when called upon. Raptora Cult
----Magister Thotek Kallisar, Third Gaze: Guides the Covens to new locations of lore, knowledge, and relics. Spends most of his time in meditation and upkeeping the many incantations of the Silver Tower while not scrying for new locations. Corvidae Cult
----Magister Basteq Hasjihn, Fourth Gaze: Commands the Covens Tzaangor auxiliary and over sees that their numbers do not fall. Whether this is done through mutations or other means is unknown to most. Pavoni Cult
----Magister Helio Aphael, Fifth Gaze: Leads the rituals and sorcerous processions that lock the Silver Tower in orbit around whichever celestial body or station they have deigned to visit. Unknown to the other Gazes of the Coven, Helo once attempted to bind Apophitar’s will, only to have his magic burned away and the seal reversed. Now enslaved to Apophitar to spy on the other Coven members for traces of insubordination. Athanaean Cult

Both sound good Kharne whichever you feel comfortable with. There is a mechanicus presence in the system, a forgeworld. However the Warp Storms that ravaged the system have not fully abated and the planet is inaccessible at this time. As such all communications are impossible until the storms pass on.

The thousand sons sound intriguing, not sure why they would be Interested in the Kaliphera Sector but some of the populace are.. disillusioned with the imperium, potential for chaos to take advantage?

One general question: In my pen and paper group we tried around with using median rolls for single D20 instead of single dice rolls to make results a bit less swingy. So you throw 3 dice and take the middle result (3/14/16 => 14). Do we want to make it that way (with 3 x D100) or do we keep to a single D100?

@ Kharne:
Spoiler:
we also plan some awakening Necrons in the system. If that is more to your taste contact me and/or Irish and we figure something out

I'm not sure it would make that much of a difference to do extra rolls. It can be done if people want but I personally don't see the point of it.

It matters if you get rotten luck and roll 3 defeats in a row, or more, lessens the impact of really bad luck

It we subtract this number from the number given to us with the requested action. You are probably right but I always found that there is a range of "safe" numbers to give DMs and more risky one persay.

I thought the number given by the player is also a dice roll? What do you mean by "safe number"?

Usually you pick a random number, you can roll if you want, and how close your number is to the randomly generated one determines success

Ah, now I understand. I thought it was meant as : I roll, the DM rolls and substracts his number. If his is bigger (So the result negative), it's bad, if mine is bigger it's good.

But now I see it's just the absolute distance between numbers. In that case we really don't need the median roll.

Yeah, It's quit the hoot. I believe my old Necrons (RIP Kageros, you will be missed) accidently(?) rammed a city with a ship due to bad rolls.

That was the first time I tried writing T'au perspective. So feel free to hit me up, when I got the naming wrong or with any other input if it doesn't really hit the mark.
Also: do T'au use the whole long name when they talk to each other or just the given name after rank and sept?

I think it's a very solid story piece Pyro! I doubt I could have done any better. I like the conflict between the castes, a fundamental difference in philosophy.

Two disappointing actions by the Imperium while a drukhari raid goes unopposed. The militia continues to undergo training from the 85th Tempestus Scions.

If anyone else is awaiting the results of a roll or is currently writing the results of one please let me know, otherwise we shall be accepting the second round of rolls and actions.

About to post my introduction piece of my vampiric GSC, here's a couple tidbits of information to preface my post. There's a quite a bit of background and I didn't want to clutter the piece.

Going for a slight Byzantine empire theme. So titles are based off that very loosely, and there's a few differences between this Cult and a normal GSC.

2. First Generation

So the third "turn" begins, feel free to send your plans and numbers to Irish or me.

On a general note: I think we can also try to be open to "non military" actions, if someone has something special in mind. It might be a propaganda campaign, bribing/blackmailing someone, a diplomatic effort. It might also be possible to request orbital pictures or reinforcements from Camorragh.
I'm not yet sure how exactly we will handle this, but you can also fortify or bobytrap a position as an action. Or search some ruins or hide the webway gate the Drukhari spilled out from.
